These new builds are the culmination of almost a year of hard work from the team and bring a whole bunch of new features, enhancements, and bug fixes (many of which have been available on the Preview channel already) to all platforms. As always, you can find an overview of new features and significant changes on our What's New page.
RO/DA build .1515 brings compatibility with .NET Core 5 (and later), better integration with the new .NET platform features, availability as NuGet packages, support for TLS 1.3, and significant improvements to DA LINQ for the .NET platform. Enhancements to DA SQL, Dynamic Where, and Business Rules Scripting have also been made and are available to all platforms.
The new build also simplifies license handling on the .NET platform (alleviating the need for .licx files) and enhances Oracle and PostgreSQL back-end database access.
Hydra 6.4 collects a range of minor fixes and improvements across the board of all four Hydra tool platforms – Delphi, .NET, Java, and Island, as well a thorough under-the-hood refactoring and cleanup, in preparation for a major new update to the library later in the year.
It also brings support for using (non-visual) plugins in Delphi applications for non-Windows platforms, including Linux and macOS.
As always, these new builds are a free update to all users with an active subscription, and they are also available as a free 30-day trial version for prospective users.
